It really is the little things that are making my world wonderful right now.
…our new sideboard still scenting the downstairs of the house with pine, even a month after we got it…
…the new yarn I started crocheting a shawl with this morning, to help pass the time until the baby arrives. It is called ‘Montana’, and is made by Sirdar.
…sitting in the sofa with Mum today, me crocheting, her embroidering, us both chatting and sipping tea.
…my window box of herbs flourishing. I can’t resist pinching the lemon verbena each time I pass.
…the friendly but shy cat who sat and watched me take photos of the wall that runs along the side of our terrace, and eventually leads to our garden.
…the latest issue of a magazine I love.
…a thoughtful friend emailing me a chapter a day to read of a really inspirational book about letting go.
…some lovely emails and texts from friends and family.
…finding that even after the long blog silence there are still wonderful people out there reading me, and even more wonderful, taking the time to leave me a comment. I can’t tell you how much that means to me!
…the plumber fixing the boiler, but needing to run the heating to make sure they had fixed it, which made the whole house smell of baby clothes, as the boiler is in the nursery!
…feeling the baby kick and squiggle away with excitement when her daddy comes home and she can hear his voice.
…a cup of tea partaken of in the garden with my lovely husband when he got home from work a bit earlier than usual.
Amidst the waiting, there are happy, happy days, and much for me to be grateful for.
